Central Repository for Business Process Improvement

iServer offers a structured approach to business process improvement. The repository folder structure is based on the DMAIC process; Define – Measure – Analyze – Improve – Control. This makes iServer easy to navigate, and also helps users select the proper Lean technique at each stage of the improvement process. A number of deliverables can also be created at each stage to further the improvement process.

Lean Templates and Stencils

iServer provides a number of attractive, out of the box templates and stencils in Microsoft Visio and Word formats. These enable users to:

  • Scope processes with a SIPOC or IGOE diagram
  • Generate a Project Charter with a Project Team Map and Stakeholder Analysis Chart
  • Visualize waste and potential causes on a BPMN process diagram
  • Perform a root cause analysis using an Ishikawa Diagram or Root Cause Analysis Diagram
  • Identify and prioritize solutions using the PICK Chart, and monitor and implement those projects with a Solution Roadmap
  • Use a Value Stream Map to analyze and design the flow of material and information required to bring a product or service to a consumer.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Highly Customisable yet Intuitive EA Platform

    We are a technology company who develop an IT system that is used within the UK utilities market. The reason for our wishing to implement iServer was twofold, firstly to maintain and track a detailed model of our product and secondly to allow us to implement a TOGAF based architecture function.

  • Easy to implement and use. Realizing immediate value.

    Before implementing iServer we managed our work on multiple disconnected spreadsheets, powerpoint and Visio diagrams. Our architecture practice had matured to the point that we needed a tool. We had adopted TOGAF as a framework. One of the things that attracted us to iServer was the fact that we could easily import our existing work

  • As it's a Visio based tool, we are able to roll-out this out across the whole business

    iServer has become an important asset for the organisation. We are using it to support our documentation and ensure governance policy adherance. There are lot of out-of-box features available which makes meant we were up and running very quickly.

  • Flexible, user-friendly tool which is highly configurable and affordable.

    iServer has met our requirements and expectations. Orbus have provided attentive and timely support throughout our relationship. Have seen many of our suggestions for product improvement added to the development pipeline and then added to the iServer product suite. In the past promises of new versions and features were not meeting promised release dates, but over the last couple of years Orbus has done a much better job of delivering against their roadmaps
